I is for Inspiration

Cairo to Constantinople: Francis Bedford's Photographs of the Middle East by Sophie Gordon

This book is a really big inspiration for me as I love the Middle East, I love photography, and I am aiming to release my own book of photographs of Jerusalem pretty soon. It's a photo book of 19th Century photographs of the Middle East taken by photographer Francis Bedford as he accompanied the future King Edward VII on a tour of the region. The book was accompanied by an exhibition two years ago, and it was then that I bought it. It has some of the most extraordinary and beautiful photographs of cities across Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Palestine and I shall leave a few below.
